Urban Campus Goal is a Reality with Eastlake at Tillery
Eastlake at Tillery, a class-A office campus in East Austin, has delivered. The 172,000-square-foot office development is comprised of two three-story buildings served by an adjacent parking structure.
The project was delivered in shell condition and is ready for tenant improvements. The site is at the center of the East Cesar Chavez district, at the northeast corner of East Cesar Chavez and Tillery streets.
“Feedback so far has been really encouraging. We’re seeing that the market really gets our design intent and appreciates the experience programmed across the property,” says Ben Tolson, managing principal with Aquila Commercial, which has the leasing assignment for the property.
The office space features floor-to-ceiling windows, large floorplates and private tenant patios. Additionally, property includes a prep kitchen and gathering spaces, bike storage, a fitness facility with showers, and a furnished mother’s suite through a partnership with Work & Mother. Work & Mother is a third-party provider of fully equipped lactation facilities.
“It’s not hard to see why people love East Austin. It feels like the coolest neighborhood transplanted from a much bigger city. Its combination of depth and approachability is unique,” says Tolson. The project was developed by CREA. East Austin architecture firm Delineate Studio designed the building and Blacksmith Collaborative was the landscape architect. Harvey Cleary served as general contractor and Epic Project Management Group was the project manager.
